Overview Se en annen vei
Two destitute brothers, Karol and Marek, make a living from robbing people in downtown Budapest. One day they suddenly come across a valuable and deadly catch. Marlen, a Norwegian anatomy student, is studying in the Hungarian capital during her first year. She meets Marek by chance, and is quickly swept up in a nightmarish maelstrom. Is it a coincidence that the people around her are dying, one after the other, in quick succession?

Look The Other Way is a psychological thriller from the beautiful and brutal side of autumnal Budapest.

Reviews from Se en annen vei
«I denne vidtfavnende, forviklingsrike teksten forenes sjelelig dybde, ytre spenning, politisk-historisk utsyn og moralfilosofisk alvor. (...)"

"I sin sjanger er dette en topproman."

 
Steinar Sivertsen, Stavanger Aftenblad

Psykologisk thriller uten mulighet for pauser 08.10.2019

"Torkil Damhaug har skrevet en bok det er svært vanskelig å legge fra seg. En bok der leseren blir drevet frem fra side til side nesten uten mulighet for en pause."

"Det er kort og godt en tekst uten ett ord for mye, full av spenning og psykologiske detaljer."

"Det er, kort og godt, en drivende god bok Damhaug har skrevet og det spørs om ikke forfatteren kan gjøre plass i våpenskapet til nok en Rivertonpris."


 
Bjørn Fredheim, Fædrelandsvennen
